The Hard Time To Go Palm Oil Free

With 12 days to Christmas, preparations for many celebrations are already underway. Shopping lists being planned, invitations and arrangements being made. It is, perhaps, the hardest time to focus on buying palm oil free products.
Perhaps that is a challenge. Yes, it is. I am challenging you - how clever can you be? How many items on your kilometre long shopping list can you substitute for a more sustainable option?
It's up to you. It's up to me. Orangutans are dying, and we are the only ones who can change it.
Go on, take up the challenge. To help you, I am sending you straight to a list of palm-oil free products - just click here. Most of the work is done for you!
A lot of people will have seen this video on TV - if you have, or if you haven't, watch it again. Then say 'awww', read the rest of the post and forget all about it - or take action.

I am aware that this is a long post - my apologies, and also my thanks if you have struggled through the whole thing.
Please leave a comment telling me what you changed on your Christmas shopping list.

Don't turn your back on orangutans.
If you can't help them, nobody can.
Do your bit - today.
